Seattle Seahawks have signed former Green Bay Packers center Greg Van Roten today only three days after the player was released by the NFC North team, according to the Seattle Post

The signing of Roten will help Seattle in many ways, with their offensive line acting as one of their weaknesses in 2013, despite their successful campaign that commenced with a Super Bowl win.

Seattle offensive line starters Breno Giacomini and Paul McQuistan are expected to be let go by the NFC West team because of there unrestricted free agent tags. 

The World Champions certainly lack depth in the offensive line positions if both of Giacomini and McQuistan don't return in 2014, which would leave quarterback Russell Wilson vulnerable. 

This is why the signing of Roten has its benefits. He didn't play much for the Packers during his two seasons, with 10 regular season appearances along with three in the play-offs. 

However, he'll be fresh, and at the age of 23 he has a lot of potential that the Seahawks will be more than happy to mould.
